East of the Sun, West of the Moon

Just for the hell of it I’m putting together a list of things for which I receive spam.

  • Casino, blackjack, poker, etc websites
  • Dating sites (Russian and other)
  • Free gifts (Armani, (Hugo) Boss, Versace)
  • Financial advice (stock, loans)
  • Medicine (viagra, cialis, ambien, valium, hoodia, xanax, tamiflu, meridia, levitra, soma, tramadol)
  • Software (Windows XP, Corel Draw, Photoshop, Encarta, Borland Delphi, …)
  • Watches (Cartier, Omega, Rolex, …)

Of course the spammers also invoke the names of known institutions to sound reliable:

  • Better Business Bureau (BBB)
  • VISA

Why don’t we hear more complaints from these brands, or are they profiting too much from the spam (any news is good news, any attention is good attention) and don’t care?
